I wanted to post a follow-up, as I had hoped to have results well before 

I've been working on getting Xen 4.0, dom0 2.6.32 and DRBD 8 running on 
RHEL 6 as part of the cluster testing I want to do. I've *just* finished 
getting these RPMs rolled, thanks to the great work of Pasi and Boris.

I am now fairly pressed for time with the holidays coming, so I do not 
expect to have a chance to revisit the benchmarking until the new year. 
I won't bother giving a date, instead opting for "when it's done, I'll 
post it" statement.

Sorry for the delays. With luck, anyone interested should be able to 
duplicate the setup with a simple repo addition, if all goes well. :)
